Resolution on governance of National Hydrogen Program approved


A resolution to create the development and organizational framework of the National Hydrogen Program was passed by the National Energy Policy Council (CNPE) (PNH2).

The project focuses on the utilization of the input in the energy sector in order to grow the input economy in the nation. President Jair Bolsonaro will now forward the proposal for consideration.

The second special meeting of the collegiate was held this Thursday morning. Adolfo Sachsida, the minister of mines and energy, Paulo Guedes, the minister of the economy, Joaquim Leite, the minister of the environment, and Admiral Flávio Rocha, the special secretary for strategic affairs of the Presidency of the Republic, all attended the meeting.

The Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) states that one aspect of the program’s administration entails the establishment of a management committee that will offer strategic directives that will be put into practice through the formation of theme chambers. These organizations hope to encourage discussions on the subject.

The organizing of the management committee and theme chamber meetings, as well as the presentation of a triennial work plan, are the next steps once the resolution is published, according to a message from the ministry. According to the government, hydrogen has “huge promise in the energy transition” and can help cut emissions.

The CNPE has already discussed the subject in its discussions. The committee identified hydrogen as one of the key areas for research funding in a resolution from March 2021. The college decided to conduct a study in April of last year in order to provide criteria for the program, which were submitted to the collegiate by the MME in August.

Three pillars—public policy, technology, and the market—are the program’s foundation, according to the ministry. “The program’s policies are organized around six major axes: reinforcement of scientific and technical underpinnings, training of human resources, planning for energy use, legal and regulatory framework, market opening and development and competitiveness, and international collaboration.”
